I am a French painter and illustrator who uses the same approaches and techniques across both mediums.
For seven years I worked in Japan and am very influenced by that culture; which I combine with my own artistic ideas.
Most of time, I work with washi papers folded, dye and glued.
These papers end up looking like a sewing pattern or even textiles.
Over time I have come to realise that my stylistic development started with my maternal grandmother, a seamstress who made men's shirts, as well as from my paternal grandparents who sold fabrics at the market.
Although my work is always rooted in good technique, I aim to create visual poetry in my pieces. For me, Art is about expressing feelings.
Mixed media : watercolor, colored pencil, Japanese felt and glued papers on folded, dyed, glued Washi or on wood panel.
